Recovery Colleges use inclusive educational approaches in a safe and welcoming environment to support personal recovery relating to mental health distress, addiction and substance use issues. In a Recovery College people with lived experience, carers, family members, those who work in the mental health and the alcohol and other drugs (AOD) sectors, and interested community members come together to develop skills and share knowledge and experiences in relation to health and wellbeing.

It is intended that WA's Recovery Colleges will be inclusive of alcohol and other drug services, consumers and family members.

The Western Australian Recovery College Expert Panel is seeking input on the development of a draft Model of Service for Western Australian Recovery Colleges. In addition to feedback received through this short survey, WANADA are hosting a forum. For more details and to register, please click here.
